Disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS) for MSPs in a comprehensive cyber protection strategy
Published by Acronis
The modern business relies heavily on information technology. And it simply cannot function whenever its IT systems go down. In the event of a sudden and unexpected disruption, from a power outage or natural disaster to equipment failure or system crash, the consequences can be catastrophic. According to research conducted by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the outlook for businesses that suffer such a crisis is often terminal. It found that as many as 40% failed to reopen following a disaster. And of those that did reopen, only 29% remained in business two years later. This underlines the compelling case for offering your clients a way to maintain business continuity if the worst should happen. Disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS) is a solution you can provide to your clients to do just that. So, in this post, we explain the concept of DRaaS, how it can help minimize the impact of a disaster, and why MSPs should include the technology in their portfolio of cyber protection services.
